It’s June 14!
A day to remember when the Continental Congress adopted the design of the American Flag on June 14, 1777. Although Flag Day wasn’t widely recognized as a commemorative day until after the Civil War, the United States (Union) Flag was a celebrated symbol in the North and Union armies during the war and seen as a symbol of reunification after the conflict.
